VisualEditor Mobile: Cursor moving handle (?) doesn't appear in Android
Open, MediumPublic1 Estimated Story Points


On mobile devices there's the "stick" blinking cursor, and usually also another handle for moving the cursor around more conveniently. I'm not sure what is it called.

I cannot see it in the mobile VE.

I'm using ASUS Transformer with Android 4.2.1.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

The previous comments don't explain what/who exactly this task is stalled on ("If a report is waiting for further input (e.g. from its reporter or a third party) and can currently not be acted on"). Hence resetting task status.

(Smallprint, as general orientation for task management: If you wanted to express that nobody is currently working on this task, then the assignee should be removed and/or priority could be lowered instead. If work on this task is blocked by another task, then that other task should be added via Edit Related Tasks...Edit Subtasks. If this task is stalled on an upstream project, then the Upstream tag should be added. If this task requires info from the task reporter, then there should be instructions which info is needed. If this task needs retesting, then the TestMe tag should be added. If this task is either out of scope and nobody should ever work on this, or nobody else managed to reproduce the problem described in this task, then this task should have the "Declined" status.)

Aklapper removed Ryasmeen as the assignee of this task.Jun 19 2020, 4:26 PM

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)
